Hey fellow TEXANS! Where in Texas are you?

I'm in Midland (west Texas). Just look on the horizon and when you see a big cloud of red dirt you'll know exactly where I am. :D

Ft Worth area.

Scout we went through that area on a trip to Ft Davis. Large area must be alot of trails.

In Midland I haven't found a single trail yet except for a dirt road behind my house. It's about as fun as driving around a parking lot.

In Fort Davis and that area I'm sure there are a bunch. I haven't been down to that area since I got my Jeep so I wouldn't know exactly where they are. Although I'd love to make a run down there sometime and find some. :)

You could always enlist someone to jump up and down on the bumper while you sit in the drivers seat making rev sounds If you are ever going through withdrawal. I thought with the size of the area there would be at least 1 place to go.

I myself haven't been offroad for about a month and have the shakes now:D

^^^ That's a great idea! I think I can even do that safely after a few brews! :D

I'm sure there are some somewhere, I just haven't found them yet. :(

D/FW (Bedford)

Is there anywhere nice to go around D/FW? (besides Marshall Creek) I used to go to Muenster with my bike, but I don't think it is open to Jeeps. Marshall Creek is too small and too crowded, but it is close

Gilmer, TX is a fun place, and is in east Texas. I believe that Katemcy Rocks is opening the first weekend of Feb. If it hasn't rained in awhile, 360 and Trinity blvd. is a fun place to play. It is a flood plain area, but has some awesome climbs. For those who like the mud, there is plenty of that. Also, some rock gardens to play on.

Almost forgot the point of this thread, I live in Alvarado, TX. Just about 30 miles south of Fort Worth.

Was going to as about the 360 and Trinity, is it legal? I've talked to a few that I've seen there, but nobody was sure. There used to be a place in Benbrook, but they closed it down.

There were some spots over by lakeworth across the lake from Carswell but we took the dogs for a walk over there a few days ago and they were being fenced off. I know a few people that were escorted out of 360 and Trinity by the police but as far as legality of being in different parts of that area I would check with the local police department. Like Blu said Gilmar is a good place from what I hear and I have seen some nice offroading areas out by Weatherford. The one I use to go to was off an old road that ended at a river crossing on the Brazos but its been a while for me and am going through severe withdrawal. Martial creek wasn't bad for mud slinging and beach lounging in the Jeep, but on my last visit about a year ago or so alot of the areas that were fun a long time ago are now blocked off (no more going into the bush through the gully's and goat trails to get to the beach).

Marshall Creek..

About 2 or three years ago Marshall Creek got bought and they put up alot of fences, you can't get to the leake with all the sand...also the big mud hole on the way. you can still get to it on a 2 wheeler, but I am too old for that now (I don't bounce anymore)
